    i already can stand Orthodox but i'm right handed and left footed, my left kick from southpaw is good but punching from that stance is hard. Therefore this question

    It is possible, but why would you want to do that?
    I think it is the best if you stick to fighting style you are comfortable with the most.

    its not like i'm changing from style or something. Just in case i'm fighting a southpaw, being able to stand both southpaw and orthodox makes it a lot easier

    I disagree with this. Your power comes from mastering your natural fighting stance and style, as a southpaw If I were to learn orthodox just to spar/fight orthodoxes it would have been a disaster for me.

    My biggest advice to you is to stop over analyzing things...

    Also quick note, if you wanna learn southpaw stance to fight a southpaw, it is easier for us to face southpaws then it is to face orthodoxes, it is tricky for both sides when they are using opposite stance, our advantage comes from the majority being orthodoxes which makes us more experienced in facing opposite stances, and not that being a southpaw randomly brings you some magical power or so.
    Forcing your body into anything that is unnatural for you is going to give you problems, explore yourself, your body, weaknesses, strengths, and work towards them and don´t impersonate things.
